There's no floorplan available yet, but the 4,536-square-foot full-floor of the Ritz Carlton belonging to professional money-making-guy Howard Marks claims to have two bedrooms, and it is hard to find a nice 2BR these days. The apartment was just listed for $50,000,000 after Marks paid $18,875,000 for it in 2007. And lest you think $50M is too high an ask, remember that a 10,000-square-foot duplex, also in the Ritz Carlton, was recently listed at $77M and sold a mere two months later for $70M, and all this comes on the heels of the penthouse in 15 Central Park West selling for its entire $88M ask. Apparently, no price is too high for an aerial view of Central Park and fancy wood paneling.
A large Living Room with exposures to both north and south boasts walls of stucco veneziano and a parquet de Versailles-patterned floor of German silver, hand-hammered over wood. A Dining Room with 18th century-style boisseries by Feau & Cie opens to a corner Breakfast Room. A Library inspired by Coco Chanel's famous Paris apartment is fitted with 18th century Chinese lacquer panels. A sumptuous corner Master Bedroom suite includes a paneled Library, and a Guest Suite enjoys 3 exposures. Sounds nice.
